WOW is all that comes to mind when I think about our wedding day. Initially, we were not planning on using Madeline’s for our linens but a competing company who at first glance, offered lower rates.  I am so very happy that we decided not to book them but go with Madeline’s because I now realize just how valuable their services are. They took our vision (which was not at all clear and precise but jumbled and very all over the place) and turned it into a very beautiful, well thought out plan which was executed perfectly.  We received credit for all the hard work they did in making our day a success, and I have to admit, I wanted to take it all for myself! In reality, we had no idea what we wanted but Jamie, Rachele and Madeline were patient and understanding and guided us through the turbulent waters of wedding planning from start to finish.

We thought Madeline’s was out of our reach (before we actually talked with them) and were pleasantly surprised with how much was going to be included in our customized package for a better price than the competition!

First up was the décor, which we had to meet twice about because our vision changed completely about three months before our wedding.  We ended up with a black and ivory damask theme that included purple wall washes and a candy buffet.  The “Alice in Wonderland” centerpieces (from the lovely ladies @ Floral Fixx) added to the elegant, yet quirky look we were going for. I truly believe the décor was what made our wedding so unique and unforgettable. Add in two beautiful crystal columns and our wedding became a stunning work of art that will be remembered by family and friends for years to come.

Another reason we were so very glad to have had Madeline’s by our side was the customized stationary they provided to make our day even more special.  We worked with Rachele tirelessly for six months to bring our stationary to life.  As with our linens, we took a completely different path with our invitations after the first draft but Rachele was extremely accommodating and worked with us to make them exactly how we wanted. After what I’m sure was hours of revisions, changes and emails our stationary was complete – from table numbers to tented love songs on the tables she was there with us every step of the way and we couldn’t be happier with the results.  Our invitations were the first thing our guests saw which hinted at what our wedding day would be like and the stationary definitely matched the grandness of the occasion – all the guests loved it and so did we!

The wedding day coordination was something we never thought we wanted or needed. Being on a tight budget, hiring a wedding coordinator for the day of was not something that was at the top of the list.  That being said, we are so glad we did! The wedding coordinators made sure everything ran smoothly without us even knowing it, allowing us to enjoy our day and not even have to think about the little hiccups that can turn into catastrophes at the blink of an eye. I was skeptical at first how impactful they would be on our day, and I can assure you they were! Even our guests are still talking about the coordinators and how amazing they were.  They helped calm our Emcee’s nerves and brought the mother of the bride tissue when the speeches started. We needed someone on our side who knew what we wanted on the day of our wedding and could relay this information to the vendors and the coordinators did exactly that.  They were our voice when we were too busy having fun to worry about it. When we finally made it to the hotel for the reception, the coordinators were there to greet us with big smiles and answer any questions we had (like they did all along) and really put our minds at ease. I am confident in saying we couldn’t have done it without them and I would recommend absolutely everyone get the Day of Coordination for their wedding day! Thank you so much ladies!

Over the last 16 months, I have learned that it really is the little details that make your day complete and Madeline’s was there at every turn when we needed advice, guidance or to answer “how do we make this unique?” They made our wedding day truly special and we can’t thank them enough!
